  1. BEIJING: Skype, Microsoft Corp?s internet phone call and messaging service, has disappeared from app stores in China including that of Apple Inc, indicating the latest setback for a foreign tech service in the country. Apple, responding to questions about Skype?s absence, late on Tuesday said it had removed several internet phone call apps from its App Store in China after the country?s government said they violated local laws. ?We have been notified by the Ministry of Public Security that a number of voice over internet protocol apps do not comply with local law, therefore these apps have been removed from the App Store in China,? an Apple spokeswoman told Reuters. ?These apps remain available in all other markets where they do business.? The Cyberspace Administration of China, which oversees censored technology, did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. According to Reuters checks on Wednesday morning, Skype was not available in app stores in China overseen by Apple, Tencent Holdings Ltd 00700.HK and Qihoo 360 Technology Co Ltd QIHUy.SG. Alphabet Inc?s Google Play app store is not available in China. Microsoft, Tencent and Qihoo 360 did not immediately respond to requests for comment. China has increased scrutiny of internet applications this year, ordering firms to remove hundreds of apps that allow users to communicate confidentially or get around China?s so-called Great Firewall system of censorship and use overseas social media. Cyber authorities have also periodically interrupted services, such as Facebook Inc?s encrypted messenger app Whatsapp over the last two months. The authorities said such actions are designed to protect personal privacy and prevent online terrorist activity. Foreign tech lobbies and businesses operating in China have said internet rules are too strict and could hit their local operations. The actions are linked to real name authentication laws brought in earlier this year, requiring all network providers to verify the real names of users with state-issued IDs or passports. Separate data regulations also require companies to store user information within China, and make it accessible to authorities for surveillance purposes. Some foreign firms, including Amazon Inc and Apple have this year handed of parts of their business to local affiliates, often citing compliance with the new cybersecurity laws. Unlike similar services that are blocked, including Facebook, Google and Twitter Inc, Skype?s services are still available for those who already have the app installed. Chinese netizens on Tuesday evening took to Weibo to discuss Skype?s disappearance, which many criticized for being overly restrictive, despite the existence of local alternatives.

  3. SAN FRANCISCO: In a rare public feud between large technology companies, Amazon.com Inc said on Tuesday its Echo Show devices could no longer play videos from YouTube because the site?s parent, Google, stopped supporting the service. The spat is the latest in Silicon Valley in which competitive tensions stood in the way of customers. Amazon and Google square off in many areas, from cloud computing and online search, to selling voice-controlled gadgets like the Echo Show. In a statement, Amazon said, ?As of this afternoon, Google has chosen to no longer make YouTube available on Echo Show, without explanation and without notification to customers. There is no technical reason for that decision, which is disappointing and hurts both of our customers.? Google, owned by Alphabet Inc, said instead that the development was no surprise. ?We?ve been in negotiations with Amazon for a long time, working towards an agreement that provides great experiences for customers on both platforms,? it said in a statement. ?Amazon?s implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violates our terms of service, creating a broken user experience. We hope to be able to reach an agreement and resolve these issues soon.? The Echo Show had displayed YouTube videos without integral features, from video recommendations to channel subscriptions. Google has been in a similar dispute with Microsoft Corp in the past. It was not clear how many customers were affected. Amazon only started selling the Echo Show in June, which comes with a touchscreen and responds by voice command. Amazon?s suite of Echo devices, including the Echo and Echo Dot, have outsold the voice-controlled Google Home, according to research firm eMarketer. Amazon has ambitions to make it normal for people to control computers by voice - and to place orders for its online retail business by voice, too. ?It?s a bit of a blow to Amazon,? said analyst Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research. ?YouTube is one of the big video services that they had in addition to their own. For that to disappear means a big chunk of the possible video content you could watch on Echo Show is now gone.? The Verge, a technology news website, earlier reported the news. Among recent tech standoffs, Amazon had stopped selling Apple Inc?s TV players in 2015 because they did not support its Prime Video service. The two finally reached an agreement earlier this year. ?Things get harder for end users because these companies can?t get along,? Dawson said.
  4. If I asked you to name the one character who we all have loved to hate and has only grown danker with every passing season, you will sing one name in chorus with me, i.e- Cersei Lannister. © HBO The woman who made the role so iconic, that even the makers have sleepless nights trying to give her dialogues that match the personality of the character is none other than the lovely Lena Headey. Our beloved Cersei graced the Jimmy Kimmel show and of course, they had a special section where the two had a full impromptu conversation similar to a scene in ‘Game Of Thrones'. The clip trending on the internet is an old one but it's one of those things where you love going back to a good classic. © Youtube There was wine involved (of course) and Lena not only managed to drink like a boss from that fancy goblet, she also managed to convert the conversation into a fully blown goblet of fire actually. In one of her perky dialogues, she exclaimed how he's wearing a lovely tie, but it's a shame that it's around a worthless neck! Jimmy was flabbergasted of course. The next season of our beloved ‘Game Of Thrones' is still far away, but until then, if we keep getting a peek of our favourite stars in amazing appearances like this, I think fans are sorted for a while. Cersei is pregnant, her prophecy has bad news for her, and her relationship with Jaime has been ruined. The next season will not just draw closure to who sits on the iron throne, but will also mark the end of every character. Are you team Cersei or Dany? Who cares right now, love her or hate her, Lena Headey as Cersei has been etched in every heart.
  5. Photobombing has taken the world by a storm as it has become an important ritual to appear in someone else's picture. Either with an intention to spoil it as a practical joke or mistakenly, which somehow always finds a way to crack people up! Imagine you and your group of friends trying to take a decent picture and it's ruined most adorably by a doggo walking into the frame! That's 'photobombing' for you. But, that wasn't the case with NASA Photographer, Joel Kowsky, who observed the International Space Station to feature it in a range of photos, flying in front of the sun. Yes, the entire situation has crossed boundaries to reach outer space, y'all! While people gathered in various areas in the US to catch a glimpse of the "Total Solar Eclipse" that took place for the first time in 99 years, the International Space Station decided to make a star appearance right when NASA was capturing the epic moment on camera. It's the moon, sunspots AND the station in front of the sun. @NASA photographer captures station transiting sun during #Eclipse2017 pic.twitter.com/hAVRINz0bv — Intl.

Folks on Twitter, on the other hand, were swift enough to respond to NASA's tweet, like always. While some were amazed to see the photobomb, others were convinced it was be a tie fighter from Star Wars, adding a humorous stride to the story. Here are a couple of tweets that you'll definitely want to check out after the live solar eclipse coverage. Is it just me or are there lots of #TIEfighters? #starWars.

Tthe team humorously blocked the NASA Sun's handle, which took everyone by surprise. Obviously, the moment the eclipse came to an end; the team didn't take much time to unblock the page as well.

  6. Back in 2011, while travelling from London to Mumbai, Badri Baldawa was so mesmerized by the mountains below that he was taken over by the idea of driving through those places. Fast forward to this year and he finally managed to do that. © Badri Baldawa/Facebook The 73-year-old steel exporter and chartered accountant, along with his wife and their 10-year-old granddaughter, set out on this unique road trip from his hometown of Mumbai till London. Embarking on their journey on 23rd March of this year in a BMW X5, the trio were on the road for 72 days, crossing 19 countries and covering 22,200 km, before reaching London. Mr. Baldawa documented the whole journey on Facebook, updating all of his friends and family about the new places they visited. Seems like the whole family is no stranger to long, spontaneous trips. According to The Hindu, Mr. Baldawa has previously hiked up to one of the base camps of Mount Everest, driven across Iceland in 2015 along with his 10-year-old granddaughter Nishi, and undertook a 46-hour non-stop drive through Norway to reach North Cape, just in time to witness the longest night. The planning for this road trip began last year and it may have taken some time, it surely was worth it. They started out by driving till Imphal, and from there, south to Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, China and then Russia. Mr. Baldawa told The Hindu, “There was no other alternate route to drive to London from Mumbai: if I were to drive via Pakistan and Afghanistan, there was no guarantee that I would make it alive. We could not go north via Tibet either, as China would not allow it.” On an average, they were covering 400kms every day by driving for around 12 hours while taking breaks, but the longest distance they managed to cover in a single day was 930 km, from Warsaw to Brussels. “On that day we had breakfast in Warsaw (Poland), lunch in Cologne (Germany), and dinner in Brussels (Belgium),” said Ms. Baldawa. This seems like one hell of a journey, and it does have a lasting impact on the couple. “It is difficult for me to think of the highlight of the trip, apart from the constant feeling of wanting to revisit those places and spend more time in almost all of them,” says Mr. Baldawa. Did this inspire you to start planning your next trip?
  7. MensXP Exclusive Story About less than a week ago, India witnessed what can only be called one of the biggest concerts in the world in modern times. World famous pop sensation, Justin Bieber came, sang and conquered hearts, minds and ears -for better or for worse. People talked about the night that was; about an experience that was. Bieber may have lip-synced. His guitar may have been un-tuned. His concert tickets might have been obnoxiously expensive. But, the ultimate truth of the moment remains that 50,000 gathered at DY Patil Stadium on May 10th 2017, to witness history in the making. And whether good or bad, it would turn out to be the night no one would ever forget for years to come. And amidst all the hype, we forget that all of this could only have happened because of a small group of people who stayed behind the scenes, handling everything - from crowd control to the superstar's requirements and everything in between. Nishant Matta Arjun Jain, Managing Director, White Fox India, Aayush Bansal, Artist Head, White Fox India, Akul Narula, Event Head, India, Ninad Shah, Project Head, Rodney Barnes, Technical Production Head and Jashoda Madhavji, Publicity Head, DNH Media, and Samantha Tzovolos, TEM as Head Of Operations - these seven individual heads are the ones who deserve due credit for one of the most phenomenal nights in the country. So, I spoke to the real stars of the show that night -the ones responsible for giving India the first ever Justin Bieber concert, ever -the people who brought Justin Bieber to India. "It was truly a magical night that will go down in the history of live events in India. This event has set new benchmark in the entertainment industry and we have successfully executed and delivered a stadium show of this magnitude," says Arjun Jain, Managing Director, White Fox India. When the news broke the internet all over the world, that Justin Bieber was going to be coming to India in May of 2017, the nation could not contain itself. "There were incessant calls from the media and the celebrities but from a PR perspective it was a huge responsibility to efficiently cater to more than 2000 press outlets on a regular basis," says Jashoda Madhavji, Founder, DNH Media, the company with PR mandate for the entire Justin Bieber Purpose Tour in India. "We ran from pillar to post and burnt midnight oil to put everything together, report to the artist/touring management as and when required and ensure that we always gave them the comfort such that they understand India's potential and realise that we are at par with their templates, benchmarks and processes," explains Ninad Shah, Project Head, White Fox India. Nishant Matta White Fox India is one of the leading companies in India when it comes to putting together some of the most enthralling events in the country. And the entire team behind this concert outdid themselves. The plan to bring Bieber to India stemmed from a need to break the clutter in the entertainment industry. "The entire scene had taken a space of monotony across the back-end and consumer end," Ninad explains. "We wanted to break this, and here we are." From the time they had a confirmation from the artist and touring teams, while they had their own set of expertise and core competencies-being the largest ticketed concert in Indian history-they made a decision to unite the industry and have as many experts work on this project. They literally met everyone before getting anyone on board for JB's army! "It wasn't about two and half months before show-day, that we actually had a final team in place, many of which were new, some knew each other some didn't, but the best part is that each one came together to build this to be the most poised concert our country would ever see," he tells us. Getting Bieber to India was both, easy and difficult for White Fox India. "It is extremely impossible to describe the effort in a few words. It was a mission, but eventually after it was all done, we have never had an experience like this-working with artist management, touring management and Justin's crew, ever before," reveals Aayush Bansal, Artist Head, White Fox India. Nishant Matta But, one of the biggest hurdles was breaking the news to the world. Jashoda recounts, "The official announcement press releases had to be timed in synergy with his (Justin Bieber's) social media post so we were chasing time-zones, really and that process got delayed 3-4 times before the actual announcement." She goes on to add that working around Bieber's media team wasn't easy since they had a no-press involvement policy for the India tour. Some of the other major difficulties the team faced were to do with planning the entire itinerary, hospitality & logistics of the crew of over 100 people that flew down to put up the show. Another important aspect with various vendors, individuals and partners being an integral part of the show was to ensure everyone was on the same page at all times. "Fortunately, we worked with very efficient partners that took this task over and that really made it all seamless," says Ninad. "We ensured that systems were in place to keep the communication and protocols optimised." Nishant Matta But, the biggest secret for everyone was always 'When is Justin Bieber coming?' Ninad recounts, "There was so much grape vine around it that we randomly had people awaiting him at airports." He narrates an incident when the crowds mistook one of the White Fox India's crew as Justin Bieber. "They were hooting and cheering for him, till they realised it wasn't really Justin Bieber," he adds. People queueing up outside the hotel they thought he was staying in, the media chasing the crew to get Bieber to meet in those days, are all part of an endless list of the buzz that the event was creating. The truth being that he was never in the country when all this was happening. "His movement was so well planned that no one even realised when he entered, or left the hotel. He was here for 22 hours, instead of the planned 4 days and, after one foot off the stage, the next foot was on the plane," Ninad reveals. "The announcement of Bieber's tour would have been far more impactful if the news was not leaked by unauthorized parties before the official announcement by the real promoters," reveals Jashoda. "If there's one thing that was missing it was a proper press outing with Justin Bieber and the promoters. From a press perspective, we could have also officially given out photographs and videos of what he was up to when he was in India but since there was strict global mandate to be followed we couldn't divulge anything to the press." Despite the odds, the team still delivered a campaign of more than 4.25 crores of media value with 2.5 lakh national and international impressions for a 3-month campaign which is quite historical in every sense. Nishant Matta A team of almost 50 people worked on Justin Bieber's riders for almost 30 days, putting every piece together across technical, hospitality and logistics; not to forget the resources used from external agencies and their counterparts. Akul Narula, Event Head at White Fox India reveals to us that a total amount of 1.6 million was spent on the show operations. "We all think it would be difficult to curate production and technical of this scale in India. But, honestly out of thousand things required on this production rider, only few handful items were not available," informs Rodney Barnes, Technical Production Head, White Fox India. Justin Bieber's India concert was a costly affair, no doubt. The 'demands' made by the artist received most of the flak. "Every artist, especially the A-league ones, come with a set of certain basic requirements and there's nothing appalling in that," says Jashoda. "In the past, when I've handled Akon, Pitbull and Bryan Adams, their teams have also had certain requirements. When Indian singers travel overseas, they have certain requirements, too. So, why the hue and cry?" Mohnish Bhatt "At times, we actually felt like all the preparations were being planned for a global leader, with the amount of protocol involved," Ninad tells us. "It's not until he flew down that we realised that when you are touring for 3-6 months and are away from your own home, family and friends, with no comfort, it is imperative that the artist is made comfortable in order to give their best." Jashoda goes on to address the criticism the organizations faced. "It's easier said than done," she says. "Everyone is definitely entitled to an opinion but it's important to consider two sides to any story before publicly slandering a team that has put in more than 6 months of hard work to get India on a prime spot on the global map." Jashoda also rubbishes claims that Justin Bieber was lip-syncing on stage. Overall, the production value was phenomenal and all of Bieber's real fans were extremely happy to have been a part of his concert in India. "There have been a few on-ground issues that will be addressed but ticketed arena shows of this scale always attract glitches not just in India but around the globe," Arjun quips. "Being a part of the event and entertainment industry conditions one to deal with crises with a solution-oriented approach," says Ninad. "It's like 'combat mode' in a video game, it's gotta be 'ON' and you've gotta be ready for anything." Mohnish Bhatt Each individual of the team has learned a lot through the experience. "To put it in one thought, the biggest learning is to have faith and trust, as anything is possible," says Ninad. "No matter how you plan and however ready you are, always remember rule #1: It doesn't always go as per plan." For Jashoda, it was more about how to hustle in an industry that is largely male dominated and still shine as an entrepreneur. "It doesn't matter whether you're a boutique agency or a large format PR agency, if you have the know-how and the knowledge success is guaranteed,' she adds. "The most important facet to be considered is that India got to witness a pop act of this scale and this event will open up the doors for other pop acts who wish to visit the country." Arjun says. Every negative has a positive and it's about how you convert a quandary into a prospect and the Justin Bieber concert was exactly that and a lot more. "The sweat and blood that went into this is unimaginable," Ninad says. "We didn't even realise how time flew and in our industry, it is never over, until it's over. One can have a bad moment, a bad minute; but, not a bad day. Hence, always focus on the next big thing and work towards it like it is your last thing."
  8. In what turned out to be the maiden heist of the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Mumbai Indians (MI) scripted a brilliant comeback against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to steal a four-wicket win at the Wankhede stadium. After losing their opening match against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS), the hosts returned strongly to record their first points this season. While the two Pandya brothers - Hardik (11-ball 29) and Krunal (3-24) - played a crucial role, it eventually took a Delhi boy to win the T20 clash for Mumbai. In an innings that the IPL fans will surely remember for a while, Nitish Rana slammed a blistering 29-ball 50 at a strike-rate of over 170. For a man who was sent ahead of the explosive Rohit Sharma, the 23-year-old thrashed the KKR bowlers for five sublime fours and three towering sixes. © Twitter Chasing a total of 178 runs, the hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals. With his team needing 60 runs off 23 balls, Rana combined with in-form Hardik to stitch a 41-run partnership off a mere 14 deliveries. With Trent Boult conceding 11 runs in the 18th over, Rana smoked young Ankit Rajpoot for a six and a four off the first two balls to the sheer joy of the home crowd. But, even if Ankit had the last laugh, dismissing the Delhi lad on the third ball, Rana's explosive knock ensured that Hardik just needed to take calculated risks to seal the game. © Twitter Pandya, who smashed an unbeaten 15-ball 35 against Pune, delivered the final blow by hitting a four off Boult to win the game for his side with a ball to spare. Ever since being signed by Mumbai at the 2015 IPL auction, Rana had to patiently wait until the final third of the 2016 season to get a look-in. He featured in Mumbai's last four games, batting at the No. 4 slot on two occasions and then, at No. 3 position in their last game of the 2016 season. © Twitter Rana's 36-ball 70 in that game against Gujarat Lions ensured he would be in Mumbai's starting line-up come 2017. And, that's exactly what happened. He started the season with a useful 34 against Pune, and then bettered it with a match-winning knock against Kolkata. Currently placed seventh in the list of leading run-scorers this season, big-hitting Rana is clearly the one to watch out for this season. Great knock by @im_manishpandey! Pandya brothers did a great job with bowling & batting. Rana was ??

  9. Getting pulled over by cops isn’t an unusual affair and something that has and will happen to almost everyone with a car. Things start spiraling out of control when you are underage or a college student, are drunk driving and the cops catch a hold of you. While you can expect getting smacked or charged with a hefty fine, a certain college student from the University of Central Arkansas stunned the cops in one of the coolest ways possible. On one hand, where most of us go through the regular breathalyzer test, Blayk Puckett, a UCA junior owned the situation like a boss and proved that he was sober by juggling three f**king bowling pins. © Pexels Puckett was driving home from the library very slowly since his brake light was broken which managed to capture the attention of a Sergeant named Keith McKay and the fellow cops who accompanied him. According to a report published in Vice, Sergeant McKay said, “A lot of times, especially around a college campus later in the night, the driving gets slower, especially if they almost hit a curb once. It’s a typical indication they might be impaired.” Puckett was clearly way cooler than anyone his age, given that he has a personalized license plate which reads “JUGGLER” and it was only later that it was found that he also happens to be a magician. Wow, how many such surprising cards do you hold up your sleeves, dude? Surprised by this revelation, McKay asked “Can I see a magic trick?” and also told him that he doesn’t have to if he doesn’t feel like. Being the badass that Puckett seems to be, he agreed to show a trick and told them that he is also a juggler and things turned awesome from there. Puckett took out three bowling pins and demonstrated his killer juggling skills that was recorded by cops and turned him into Internet’s latest star kid. Stunned by his moves, McKay thanked him and later informed that he wasn’t pulled over only for the broken light but also because they thought he was drinking. According to McKay “Nobody can do that intoxicated” and we couldn’t agree more. Puckett was so happy after meeting the cops that after this incident, he tracked them down only to fulfill their initial request to perform some magic tricks. Well, this isn’t the first time that people had to resort to such unusual ways to prove their words. A few days ago a software engineer was asked to solve binary search tree to prove his skills, after getting detained at the JFK airport. Imagine if a thief is caught in India, will he be asked to rob the cops to prove he is a pro at his job? Source: Vice
